Why Suzanne Swift chose Wild Rose
We always wanted to find a perfect place for our family to enjoy the summer but it took several years for us to find the right spot. We purchased the property in 2016 and then spent 18 months making major and minor improvements. We feel in love with the property because it is right on the lake edge and allows wonderful access to everything the lake has to offer.

A few cautions: The stairs to basement where the beds are, are very steep and narrow. Could be a limiting factor for people with knee problems. My husband and I have some knee problems but we were able to make it up and down during the week without lingering effects. Just takes a little effort to go down the stairs. At times just taking a step at a time.
Also they no longer have a working fireplace which is one of the features in the description in February of this year that I was attracted to. I don't know if that has been taken out of the description by now.
Those 2 items aside this cabin is so cozy and cute and comfy. The kitchen is well equipped (I did baking and cooking during our stay), the views of Big Hills Lake are awesome. You are right on the water. Open the windows up and you can hear water lapping at the shore. It is charming. It is surrounded by pines and oaks and you can hear lots of birds singing.
The owner is very responsive to any questions and wants you to enjoy your stay. Very friendly but not intrusive. They own a cabin next door and sometimes will be there. But they are quiet.
All round good memories were made the week I was up 6/14-6/21. Except weather was cold, rainy and gray. But the cabin is well heated and you feel snug if you go up there in cooler weather. Besides Wisconsin weather...what are you gonna do???
